The Unicorn As A Symbol

The Unicorn - As a Symbol

"Dreams are the playground of Unicorns." - Unknown


Perhaps the most wondrous of all mystical creatures, the Unicorn is a Symbol of magic, miracles, purity, innocence and enchantment.


This magical and enchanting animal appears to only a rare few and has the ability to bestow magic, miracles and Wisdom to those who are pure of heart and virtuous in their deeds.


The presence of a Unicorn is announced by the soft and faint tinkling sound of tiny bells being shaken; or of tiny Chimes being rustled by a breeze. And as bells and chimes Symbolize the presence of Divinity, the tinkling sound which accompanies the nearness of a Unicorn reminds us that we are in the presence of a highly spiritual essence whose boundless domain encompasses all realms matter and spirit. 

To kill a Unicorn is to destroy a Divine Incarnation of purity, perfection, and wonder. It is a deed which burdens the individual who commits the Act with an enormous Karmic debt.


The Unicorn is depicted as a white horse which has a long, straight, spiral-shaped Horn protruding from the top of its head.


There are three basic Symbols contained in the Unicorn: the color white, the horse, and the Horn:


The Horse is a Symbol of Travel and movement. And as the Unicorn is a spiritual horse it has the ability to Travel and appear wherever, and whenever, it wishes; it has the ability to appear throughout all realms and dimensions. 



“Well, now that we have seen each other”, said the Unicorn, “If you’ll believe in me, I’ll believe in you” – Lewis Carroll’s – Through the Looking Glass.



White is the color of innocence, purity and perfection. White, which is Symbolically similar to silver, represents the lunar, feminine aspects of receptivity, instinct, intuition and virginity. Virginity in its truest metaphysical and alchemical aspect represents the unadulterated (untainted) mind and spirit; it is the prima material (pure matter) and the prisca sapientia (pristine knowledge, or Wisdom). It is for this reason that to have a Unicorn appear to us is both a great honor and Divine Gift. For, as stated before, only the pure of heart and virtuous of deed are deserving to have a Unicorn appear to them.


The Unicorn, unlike all other horned animals save perhaps the rhinoceros, is a single-horned creature. While the two-horned animals are linked, Symbolically, to the realm of duality and matter, the Unicorn's single horn reminds us that its domain is the realm of Unity; a realm that Transcends and exists beyond the bounds of matter and duality.


The single, spiralled Horn is a Symbol of the endless, repeating Cycles of Time. It is also Symbolic of the Sword. And as the Sword Symbolizes the mind, the Unicorn's Horn also signifies Unity of Thought and purity of reason. We also notice that this single Horn protrudes from the top of the Unicorn's head which is the location of the crown chakra. The crown chakra is a Border Between Realms; it represents the highest level which our mind can attain and is the Spiritual Gateway to the higher realms of Spirituality and Divine Consciousness.


When depicted within a forest, the Unicorn represents purity and enchantment amidst growth, birth, rebirth, renewal and fertility; which are all feminine essences. 


When a Unicorn is portrayed along with a lion it Symbolizes the Union of the feminine (white, lunar) and masculine (Gold, solar) aspects of our dual nature. This Symbolism also represents the Alchemical Marriage.


In Chinese tradition the Unicorn is an "auspicious and perfect spiritual beast which appears when sages are born". ***


As we can see, the Symbolism of the Unicorn is deep, pure, and magical. And as very few individuals are pure and virtuous enough to have a Unicorn appear to them we should feel very Blessed should a Unicorn someday appear along our Path.

All Mythical Creatures

All mythical creatures offer us so much potential to increase our own knowledge through self-examination and mindfulness.

In and around my home, inside and out I have fairies, gnomes, and I even have a little brownie, she was given to me a few years ago. 

My spirit body becomes that of a white dragon.

Great creatures of the spirit are a constant part of my life.

My daughter has an Ice Blue Unicorn. I only know this because it kept me awake one night repeatedly telling me to tell her, "I'm not purple, tell her I"m not purple". Purple is not her best favourite colour, but its pretty close lol. She had dreams of her unicorn but could never recall its colour. She was thrilled to learn of its colour. 

I don't think my son has any mythical creatures as a spirit guide, I would have to jog my memory. I myself have a dragon and a mermaid. 

Magic is all around us. Sometimes we don't get to see this magic but we are always given the gift to feel it. Being a practicing pagan of witch and shaman brings this thought into actual practice.

I am always grateful for the work you do with Creator and many fine spiritual beings and that you share what is directed to you with all of us. 

You have always given much of yourself in all the ways you have been gifted to do so. 

I am not surprised that all creatures, mythical and real find comfort with you and talk to you. 

If I'm not mistaken, I believe it was our lovely Earth Mother Goddess, Gaia that once told you, you attract the goodness that you do because of the purity of your heart and that you accept all for who and what they are. You do not fill your mind with silly attachments or romantic views, you see things as they are even if they are within the spirit realm and can only be seen through vision and felt by energy. 

I completely love the information you were encouraged to bring us. Even while apart, I will always be here for you, supporting you. Know my love, my heart is yours - forever. 

Highest of Blessings and Love 

Thank You Dear For Your Visit And Interest

All teachings I share here, including healing ones are all under the direction of Creator and sometimes other deities.

He and I work very closely each morning and sometimes later in the day. He chooses through me which informative articles I am to share. My dedication and commitment to Him is profound and I love all the work I do for Him and for all the spirits that move through me each day.

It is always wonderful dear to see you here and know you are learning and becoming more.

Mythical creatures such as the unicorn, fae, and other-kin are a natural part of not only my life but my children's life. We are part of a 5th D world that is home to many such divinities of nature. Being an open vessel, I am able to communicate with them all.

Thank you again for your visit,

Blessings of Divine Light and Love
